That's an easy one! Hitec 7955 BY FAR! It's also one of the best on the market surpassed only by the hitec HV servos.

you have no idea what i put my buggy through. I have 2 mbx 6's and one of them gets put through hell and back. I have 7955 servos in it and it has zero slop after more then a year. it definitley lives up to the reputation. you can't ask for anything more. You can get them for 100$

I broke the case on a jr in 2 weeks
